Wool is a common natural fibre that is obtained from sheep, goat, rabbit or camels. It is renewable, recyclable, and if not treated with chemicals, biodegradable. Wool is best known for its warming properties when it’s cold, but it is also temperature-regulating to stay cool when it’s warm. This is due to the structure of wool fibres which enables them to trap air and absorb moisture without becoming damp.
Elastane is a synthetic technical fibre that gives stretch to fabric. It´s usually mixed with polyester or polyamide in sportswear, and with cotton or wool in trousers, shirts and suits to provide stretch.
